It’s Friday night and as I’m sick the most fun I’m having is posting this gem from the collection:
This postcard is another fine specimen of gimmick postcards. In this case, the gimmick is that the horse’s eyes are googly eyes. Sadly, the horse had an accident due to Royal Mail or Canada Post and is now a rather terrifying cyclops.
Here’s the reverse side:
“Card [is] one of the Walton Collection – I hope it’s your first googly eyed one – and that the eyese survive the trip. I discovered them whilst searching for birthday party paraphernalia [for x]. She’s very spoiled. [censored]”
Indeed, I believe this is the first – and only – googly eye postcard I have. Despite the postal mishap to the one eye, I’m still thinking the horse might make a good mascot for this blog. What do you think?
